The Bookbinder

Steve Iredale learned traditional book-binding and paper-making while working with Sue Callaghan in Sheffield. Combining these skills with his interest in wood-carving he came up with his unique method of making unusual books.

Besides making and selling his books he also runs book-binding workshops in schools throughout the region, showing school-children how to make their own books.

Steve lives in the small fishing village of Staithes on the north coast of Yorkshire. Some of his spare time is taken up as a volunteer helmsman on the RNLI's Staithes lifeboat.
